2018 ACC Tournament: Notre Dame vs. Duke Game Thread

Let’s talk about tonight’s game, which tips at 7 on ESPN.

NCAA Basketball: Notre Dame at Duke Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

The Duke Blue Devils and Notre Dame Fighting Irish tip off at 7 tonight for the quarterfinals of the 2018 ACC Tournament. ESPN will handle the broadcast and it will be streaming through their Watch ESPN app.

Duke is the second-seeded team in the tourney, while the Irish are the 10th seed. The victor gets the winner of the game between the sixth seeded North Carolina Tar Heels ans the third seeded Miami-Fl Hurricanes. That game tips at 9 p.m.

The Irish are playing for a chance to make it difficult for the NCAA Tournament selection committee to exclude them. A win over Duke would be a much-needed data point in their favor, although it still may not be enough to offset early season bad losses to the likes of Ball State Cardinals and Indiana Hoosiers (or getting blown out by the Michigan State Spartans).

Join us in the comments section as we watch the game and long for the return of “Maui” Mike Brey.
